Originally designed for the Alpine World Championships in Vail, Colorado, the Dale of Norway(R) Vail Sweater has fast become an essential piece for comfortable cold-weather styling. Medium Weight Merino Wool knit: Shorn from Merino sheep, this fine yarn is spun from long-staple fibers with tightly overlapping scales for smooth, next-to-skin softness. Crafted in a three-ply fabrication from 27-micron fibers. Combing process removes short fibers reducing itchy edges and the chance of pilling. Wool naturally wicks moisture away from the skin and speeds passage of vapor from perspiration for high breathability. Premium wool creates high air retention for improved thermoregulation. Lanolin inherent to the wool offers antibacterial protection for improved odor resistance. Jacquard-knit snowflake pattern is designed after the traditional eight-point rose. Stand collar is fleece lined for added comfort. Quarter-zip closure with inner draft flap. Long sleeves. Straight hemline. Logo patch at left sleeve. 100% wool. Machine wash, reshape, and dry in the shade. Made in Norway.
